I am sighted and trying to help a blind person, Gennie, use Outlook Express 
in Freeport, Bahamas with JFW 5.0.
My ISP is a cable service called coralwave.  She is using a DSL connection 
called  She receives mail addressed to her daughter, but 
cannot send.  I wrote about this problem in a separate email.

Gennie is using her daughter's computer, and the account is in her 
daughter's name.  She connects using her phone number for a user ID and her 
daughter's name as a password.  But when she presses ctrl n to write new 
mail it gives her daughter's name as the ID and she uses something else for 
a password.

Is there any way to configure Outlook Express so she can send mail in her 
own name?


I thought I could do it with hotmail or yahoo and have gotten instructions 
from people on this forum, but cannot get either to work after trying for 
many days and hours.
